Getting a Data Science job, ToyDB and PyCon APAC!
Welcome to my weekly tech musings. Do reply to me on what you liked this week and what you want to see more. In addition, you could access old issues here!
A friend of mine asked to help guide his niece to begin his career in the Data Science world. He has completed his MSc in Mathematics. It has been some time, I’ve spoken to someone who is from a non-professional degree looking to begin a career in Technology. It is tough to get started in a more specialized career like Data Science as the companies would not accept the candidature, there are no direct boot camps, etc.
But then, I got few resources that might be helpful for you all.
There are numerous DS-related resources and EdTech companies with paid courses. However, even if you all these courses, building your GitHub profile for initial selection is essential.
What I made this week?
I got access to the Github copilot, and from then, I’ve been using it in my daily workflow of writing code. And I made a video of my experience. Do watch!

Tech for me is not Consumer Tech - it is much more. I read this interesting take on why China is smashing with regulations on its overseas-listed popular consumer tech companies.
Why is China smashing its tech industry?
Maybe because what countries think of as a “tech industry” isn’t always the same
